    I am, but I'm not sure why...

    Let me set this straight, right off the bat: I never played Pokemon as a ‘kid’. Never watched the shows, never collected the cards, didn’t play ANY of the games...

    I only started playing Go because it seemed immensely popular when it came out, was free, and gave me something to do when I was bored, and with my kids that were KINDA getting into Pokemon.

    Also one of my guilty pleasures is watching grown men with dirty minds and mouths play Minecraft, and they did a couple Pixelmon series, where there are Pokemon elements in a Minecraft world. I suggest looking it up, its quite entertaining.

    So back in JANUARY I caught this guy:


    Hadn’t seen one before, and as it turns out, I would see one again for NEARLY A YEAR.

    Until I saw a little yellow-brown turd on my screen after parking in the lot to pick up my daughter from dance class:


    Nearly. A. Year.

    Why does this bother me so much? Was it the two Sandslash raids I missed out on by mere MINUTES last week? Was it because its the favorite ‘Mon of one of the YouTuber dudes I watched?

    I dunno. I’m just happy to finally see another one. And once I evolve my Onix into a Steelix (5 more candies, dammit I need more Rare Candy drops from raids!) I’m walking with the Sandshrew until I have 23 more candy so I can get the Sandslash I always wanted.

    For some reason.

    Anyone else?

    Pokemon Go was an example of how to kill a game, it was tremendously popular, and then the developers killed the game by introducing things which flat out weren't necessary,, like removing the ability to catch pokemon when you were in a car..

    Then they removed some of the helper sites,, that was the last straw..

    I played the game because my son played it, but once they removed the ability to catch them in a moving vehicle I no longer had a desire to even play for him.. Since I played 99% of the time while on the way too and from work..

    Judging by the Pokemon Go subreddit, yeah.
    Judging by how many people I see at the local park nowadays, no.
